D.C. United have lost just two of their previous 12 Major League Soccer outings and bettors will fancy the hosts to continue their solid run of form.
Wayne Rooney has helped United to climb the Eastern Conference ladder and the playoffs are not out of reach just yet. A win here could be huge for D.C as they look to cement their status as one of the strongest teams in the business.
Montreal were 20 minutes away from a hard-fought victory over D.C. United back in August but it just wasn’t to be.
The Impact can exert revenge in the best way possible here though; beating the Washington outfit on home turf would send shockwaves across Major League Soccer. Watch this space, the Canadian side mean business and it would be foolish to write the visitors off.
As previously mentioned, the last fixture between these two sides ended in a draw and it wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see this one go down to the wire.
D.C. are a different beast nowadays but Montreal are solid and the Impact could frustrate their opponents if they defend well. This one is poised perfectly ahead of the weekend’s action…
Fancy the hosts to emerge victorious? Well, you’re in luck. William Hill are offering EVS for a D.C. United victory this weekend – the best price in the industry.
Given their recent success on home soil, it may prove prudent to side with the hosts. Unfortunately for Montreal, this could be a disappointing trip to the United States capital.
A share of the spoils could be the way to go ahead of this fixture and punters should take the 3/1 on offer with 10Bet.
It wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see the Impact snatch a point if they perform at their brilliant best; restricting this D.C. offensive unit is no easy feat though and Rooney will be raring to go ahead of another home encounter.
Meanwhile, Montreal are available at 5/2 for those fancying a Canadian triumph. 888sport customers should take that price while it lasts – the Impact could receive plenty of support before kick-off.
On paper, this is a difficult fixture and Montreal fans will be taking nothing for granted though. In the MLS, anything can happen.
Goal Scorer Tips And Other Bets
The 8/13 for under 3.5 goals with Betway should be snapped up. Major League Soccer has a reputation for high-scoring fixtures but Montreal are one of the league’s more defensive-minded clubs and the Impact can frustrate D.C. United here.
With that in mind, it wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see either side edge this one by the odd goal and that brings the under goals line into play.
Following on from that, 3/1 for D.C. United to win by one goal represents solid value. There is a gulf in class in terms of recent form and the hosts will be quietly confident but you can never write Montreal off.
An interesting encounter and one that is quite difficult to call. D.C. United look poised to claim another huge win on home soil but it isn’t going to be easy. Wayne Rooney can be their difference maker once again and Montreal will be looking to stop the former England international from controlling proceedings.
Whatever happens, the under goals line is the way to go – this has all the makings of a close contest and D.C. United might just about edge it.
TIP: Under 3.5 goals (Priced at 8/13 with Betway)
CORRECT SCORE: D.C. United 2-1 Montreal Impact (Priced at 8/1 with William Hill)
